well so far only been on forum for a little while and so far i've had a good reception from some of you with some problems i've been having.
thought i'd say hi to everyone and introduce you to my recent new motor
just turned 20, so insurance is still ruling my choice of car at the moment which is an absolute pain in the arse.
none the less picked this beauty up
its a 2000 318ci with the old 1.9 8v engine in it and thought it was a steal for £2k considering how nice the bodywork is. It had been sat on the forecourt for a long time though
so did need a bit of tlc but it drives like a prince now
all serviced up
new brake calliper and front discs and pads
vacum hoses changed
crankcase breather valve and pipe changed
new maf sensor
new expansion tank
only thing left now is theres a very slight bit of play in the lower control arms once there changed it'll drive perfect
i'm supprised how well it goes contrary to what people on the forums say. but i suppose last car i owned being a 106 anythings gonna be an improvement :P.
fuel consumption good too getting 40mpg which i can't grumble at to say i've nearly gone up a litre in engine size
on the outside im planning on just keepin her nice and tidy. got some black grill's in there and was considering getting the wheel's done black/ grey cause they need referbing anyway :P
what do people reckon to that ?
so anywho hey guys and hope to be on here for a while to come, you've been great help so far
